Mobile Gaming USA, a two day summit and expo held in San Francisco California, is quickly increasing in relevance, not only because of the burgeoning mobile gaming market, but because the expo has managed to attract some of the most prestigious members of the industry, including the likes of Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason and former CEO of Electronic Arts, John Riccitiello. However, what is most interesting about this expo is not its star studded guest list, but rather the surprising data that has been revealed during the summit.
Noodlecake Studios has released their newest game onto Android called Zombie Road Trip Trials. This particular game is a mix of arcade driving and physics-based gameplay that revolves around destorying zombies while you are driving. This can be done with weapons attached to your car, or perhaps using the car itself.
The Trials franchise has finally made its way to Android devices in the form of Trials: Frontier. For those of you not familiar with this series of games, the Trials franchises puts players in control of dirt bikes which they have to drive across some of the most ridiculously difficult tracks one can think up in their mind. This means plenty of crashes and plenty of attempts to make a single jump.
The Bomberman franchise has always been a popular one mainly because it is fun blowing up stuff, whether it be other players or the enemies within each level. A new game called Exploder 3D takes the Bomberman idea but ads a bit of an artistic flare to is through 3D rendered visuals. The interesting thing is this, the developer might not even be aware of the artistic merits this game has.
Archangel is a dungeon crawler from Unity Games and Black Tower Studios where you play as the eponymous archangel who’s been commissioned by Heaven to defeat the forces of evil on their turf. You’ll traverse a undefined nether realm that’s spread out over thirty levels, use gestures for combat, and upgrade your character with powers and loot that you find along the way or purchase. Outside of that premise, there isn’t much for a story along the way save for some of the levels having a brief introductory cut scene showing what it looks like, and a handful of subtitles. In short, you just go out and slay your enemies as the emphasis in Archangel is on the action. And just like this game features a conflict between good and bad, there’s also good and bad within the design of the game itself.
